The first thought that came to mind when I realised my 3 years was coming to an end, was “Seriously, but we’ve just started, we're not done yet!”
To be honest, I don’t think you are ever done when it comes to youth and children. Your heart grows with each new addition and never seems to reach full capacity. There is always room for one more.
Our youth are a very special part of ministry and an integral part to the body of UMC, growing future disciples for Jesus. If we want to change our world, this is where it begins. Setting the foundations for our young people through God, developing them to be the adults He will lead in future generations to come.
When Michael approached me 3 years ago to be a Steward, this was my deciding factor, if I wanted to be a part of making a difference to our world, then I needed to step up to the plate and grow through Christ and trust Him to guide me to do just that.
The time has flown by and as I graciously step down and hand over to a very capable lady, Kelan, I sit here reflecting on what the past 3 years has meant to me and the role I played.
It has truly been an honour being part of the Leadership team and helping grow the Youth and Sunday School portfolio.
I have the privilege of teaching our children too, and seeing them grow from Sunday School and moving up into our youth group, which is strengthening each year. The youth rally’s and camps that have developed over the past couple years has truly bonded us all and besides the fun and fellowship shared together, it has been beautiful watching their eagerness to grow and prosper through Jesus.
Thank you to every parent, teacher and volunteer that has been involved in supporting Sunday School and Youth and sharing in this magnificent journey.
God bless, Candice
